. in terms of what she did tell you -- i saw a cbs reported that i posted on under the headline on who's on first, which can no one decide who took out al-qaeda, some have claimed responsibility, then denied. it's the most bizarre thing. >> the most interesting thing about that, after the raid that took out bin laden we knew every single detail, as you know, within 24 hours, absolute total details, many of which placed people's lives in jeopardy, such as the doctor now in prison for life, and others. here we are, 10 or 11 weeks later and we still don't know the basics of what happened. by the way, i'm still looking for that picture of the president in the situation room with his cabinet watching the raid on the consulate in benghazi. i don't think we'll see that anytime soon. >> greta: what i didn't understand, though, and maybe you asked her, it just isn't in the reports, the discussions about who took out al-qaeda, who put it back in. one thing i didn't get, where did she come up with the idea of video and there were protests? was that in the talking points, or did that come f

you talk about it being an iconic brand, so is your father, albeit for another network with cbs. but your father must be so proud of you. >> i guess so. i hope he is. he's the person i've looked up to obviously as a dad but also professionally just in the way he's carried himself and conducted himself. and always been professional and respectful of other people and done exactly what he wants to do with his life and career. he's been lucky to be able to do that. he's been at it at cbs now for 25 years. and still going strong. still doing it. so i hope he's proud of me. i'm proud of him. i actually started my career in sports. my first job out of college was at cnn "sports illustrated" which was a 24-hour sports network that i know you're familiar with. i really -- it was around for awhile. >> a little while. when you left that was it. >> right. it was a great place to learn the business. it was a bunch of young people in their 20s covering sports. that was i guess my first tv love was in sports. the nice thing was the audience went along for it. they didn't say wait a minute this

and cbs to not mention the issue at all, not to mention -- they didn't mention cas andra perkin's name or javon belcher's name. there was oblique reference to the suicide before the game. fox chose not to mention it at all. the fact that on nbc obvious costas had a real discussion about it, i thought, was brave and admirable, specifically because i don't think fox realized to not talk about it is a political choice, too. you are saying something about perspective, something about the value of human life all of that being said he had 90 seconds to say whatever he could say about the issue. but, if i would have had those 90 seconds, i am not sure that's the key issue for a very simple reason. the problem is certainly gun culture in the broad senses. there is a huge gun culture in the national football league. if a person wants one, they are going to get one legally, illegally, what-have-you. this is an issue more about the national football league and their accountability. there is a small part of me that thinks in the league offices they are breathing a sigh
